 LEBANON - NETHERLANDS
  Rima Khcheich-Mike Fentross-Maarten Ornstein
Ombre de mon amant
Performers: Rima Khcheich – (vocals); Mike Fentross - (theorbo and vihuela); Maarten Ornstein – (bass Clarinet)
If you ever need any proof that music is truly an international language, this is it. A Lebanese singer, a baroque musician and a jazz musician united in their love for beautiful songs that enable and inspire them to sing and play their best. Songs from the West and from the East, both old and new. Music by Dawud Hosni, Michel Lambert, Umm Kutlhum and Constantijn Huygens go side by side, with new lyrics in Arabic by Rabih Mroué fitted to 17th Century Baroque songs and innovative arrangements for the classical Arabic ones. With this bold move these three musicians are setting the pace in crossing the borders between jazz, classical European and Arab music.
Co-producers: Maarten Ornstein, Rima Khcheich, Mike Fentross, Jakko van der Heijden
